Micro blogging site Twitter has planned to roll out a new ‘email digest’ that would summarise top stories and tweets in users’ networks.

According to Othman Laraki, Twitter's growth and international director, the new weekly summary feature, which was announced on the company''s blog Monday, is already available to some users.

“This summary features the most relevant tweets and stories shared by the people you’re connected to on Twitter,” Laraki said in the blog post.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the new feature is described as being similar to Twitter's ‘Discover’ tab, which the social network redesigned earlier this month.

The feature comes just four months after Twitter acquired Canadian start-up Summify, which is a service that sends users emails summarizing the top stories from their Twitter and Facebook networks as well as other services, such as Google Reader.
